    2014 Ford Taurus SHO SQ stealth Audio build

    Will be starting a SQ audio build on a new 2014 this week. The Taurus will retain the stock Sony
    navigation unit to keep a OEM unit look and feel. Will be running fully active 2 way up front and a sing 12" sub in the rear. The trunk area will house the DSP processor, amps and sub in a stealth setup to maximize space for daily use and clean OEM look.

    The equipment and products

    - Mosconi 4to6 DSP
    - Mosconi Gladen one 120.4 amplifier
    - JL JX 1000/1.
    - PHD FB 6.1 Pros 2 way components
    - JL Audio 12w6 v2 in sealed enclosure
    - Focal BAM X.X.X.L Sound deadening material
    - Black hole sound tiles for door panels
    - Stinger 100% copper 14ga speaker wire, 4 gauge power wire
    - Stinger RCA cables

    Stay tune for updates

    Love the new SHO's. Wondering why you went with a JX amp though? The rest of the equipment is in a much higher class than that amp. Just odd to see a Mosconi and a JX series in the same install

    That's the amp the customer is supplying me with for the install. It was out of his budget range to add a new Mosconi amp for the sub. If it was up to me it would be all Moasconi AS amps.

    so you have the same sony system then? Do you have a system in it? If so did you use a dsp and did you go pre amp signal or post amp?

    In short, I agree, however one could argue that the term "mine" could be applied in the situation of it being owned for a family. Such as my house, I don't pay for it, I live in it though. I don't pay for my mom's car, but I ride in it almost everyday.

    Updates please bud



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"
